I would like to reject this for the sheer effort on my eyes, but
I'll try harder to rationalize.

How about memcmp(fa, old_fa, offsetof(struct fsxattr, fsx_pad))?

Would be more robust to future struct fsxattr changes and generally
more easy on the eyes.

Sure, there is the possibility of userspace passing uninitialized
fsx_extsize/fsx_cowextsize without setting the flag, but is that
a real concern for the very few tools that are used to chattr?
Those tools, when asked to set an attribute, will first get
struct fsxattr from fs, then change the requested attr and set the
fsxattr struct. So IMO the chances of this causing any regression
or unexpected behavior are ridiculously low.

Thanks,
Amir.
